  • charvaka " prince of heterodox"- comment.

    I won't attempt the exact answer but try to draw the outline. Please tell if it makes sense.

    Start with what is Orthodox and heterodox in the context of Indian philosophy and what were the social conditions ie 6th century BC when Orthodox philosophies/ religion emerged.

    Move on to discuss the philosophy mainly the ontology and the epistemology of carvaka ie materialism and perception. Then various criticism of carvaka. Then few positives like how the skeptical approach enriched philosophy, the concept of cultured hedonism etc.

    I will end the answer on the point that out of the various heterodox schools carvaka faded away while Buddhism and Jainism continued to be far more important. It can be called a progenitor of the heterodox schools but not the prince.
